New postal vote scandal in Aberdeen

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. bbc scotland
  2. At least the returning officer is on the ball!
  3. Interesting one. The Returning Officer probably had this Court application prepared in advance for such a contingency.

    Mind you, there is no way the polling station staff would not know it if someone turned up to vote and had already been sent a postal ballot.

    If you had applied for but not received a postal ballot and then turned up in all innocence at the polling station, it would seem to be adding insult to injury if you also had to answer searching questions from the heavies.
  4. Is this a "sheep for votes" scandal?

    :wink: :wink: :wink:
  5. or fish?

    alternatively, could be (allegedly) mean Aberdonians hoping to get two votes for the price of one :roll:
  6. The problems have been resolved and no electoral fraud has been uncovered. Welldone to the electoral officer for being so switched on.
